Here in los angeles housing is expensive but there’s an alternative which could save about thirty percent on construction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows us more as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living in modular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get all the headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA and Long Beach and many of them stay but.
Some are being repurposed into everything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about a shipping container home I thought this is insane and then I met Peter and I still thought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build two shipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in place and my grandchildren will grow up here and I’ll be with my daughter and my son inlaw. they’re building with architect.
Peter demaria but it’s an idea that still stirs controversy. in this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bring something like this to the city and they’re like, yeah I don’t know? it took several trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiple modifications to the design and Matt had the same concerns as the city. my opinion was oh my gosh it’s going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built from shipping containers look like this and.
This all of these homes were designed by the architect very few people be able to tell wow that’s a shipping container home. containers are the thing that really breaks down the door and people say maybe I can do the little bit differently and I’m not going to sacrifice quality and I’m not going to sacrifice on the size of the house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containers can be covered with any surface like.
Wood stucco or vinyl siding and it’s affordable while maintaining quality in general they’re around 30 percent less than traditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is a heavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house a comforting thought in quakeprone Southern California and by upcycling metal containers it’s one of the greenest options available so the containers become a means to an end.
We’re changing the way we think about building and we’re saving the planet. we’re taking material and upcycling it as opposed to cutting down five or six acres of forest every time we put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there’s a revolution to change how we live and the Dowd’s are early adopters and I think this is how a great progress is made really this happen overnight and the fact that we’re building shipping container homes makes it less.
DIY Make Your Own EOS Lip Balm Recycle Old EOS Container
Hi guys it’s caitlyn, and i have like a really exciting tutorial for you. I have been wanting to do this for so long, I have tried so many trials and I finally found a way that I really like and I really want to share with you guys. And it is DIY eos’s. I have seen so many tutorials for this and I have never found one that I like and I think that the way I found how to do it is super cheap.
I didn’t have to spend any money i found this stuff around my house. I mean that could be different for some but I just love it and I want to show you close ups. This one was the first one that I made and it didn’t turn out as well as the one that I made today. But this is how the first one looks. I mean its still good but it’s not as good as this one. It just shows you that the more you practice the better this DIY will be. Because it doesn’t always turn out good the.
First time. you know? This is the second one and I think it looks exactly like a eos. I mean the consistency will vary depending on how much product you used or whatever, and it’s not going to be exactly like a eos. Eos’s are $3, I think thats a very affordable price. So if you want the real thing, $3 is a great price.
These aren’t going to match up to them, they’re not perfect. But it is a fun way and if you are feeling creative and you want to recycle and reuse the ones that you have already used up, this is a great DIY for you. So if you would like to see how to make your own eos continue to watch. For supplies you will need: A pan.
A glass container double sided tape saran wrap Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline an empty eos container crayons, this part is up to you. If you don’t want your eos to have a tint to it just use.
White. i wanted mine to have a little bit of pink in it though, so thats totally up to you. lighter and finally, some nail clippers and and pair of scissors. To start the DIY you want to clean out the rest of your product. I used a spoon, you can use whatever you have. You can use your fingers or paper towels.
Just get the product out as best you can. Then use the scissors to cut out this plastic divider. It just gets in the way of the eos and you want to get rid of it. and your kind of left with these plastic poky things that are sticking out and the scissors couldn’t get so you want to take your nail clippers and just get rid of those and cut as close as you can.
After that you want to go and wash it out with soap and water. The next step is to put water in your pan and put it on a medium heat. For your eos use about a scoop and a half of the Petrolum Jelly or Vaseline per eos container. That should be enough. For crayons I would actually recommend using a little bit more than what I showed in this clip.
